In this lecture you will learn how to Graph Quadratic Equations. You will begin with an overview of Quadratic Functions which have graphs of a Parabola that can Open Upward or Open Downward. Next, you will see the Properties of Parabolas such as the Axis of Symmetry and Vertex. Lastly, you will understand the Maximum and Minimum Values of a Parabola.
Use the axis of
symmetry to help you graph a parabola. Graph the right or left half
and then reflect the graph across the axis of symmetry.
The maximum or
minimum value of the function occurs at the vertex. Use the formula
for the vertex to find the maximum or minimum.
